Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
What is science ? Popper the popular Atheist 'philosopher' thought that the demarcation of science was the ability to falsify an idea or hypothesis. Popper claimed that, if a theory is falsifiable, then it is scientific. This is rather absurd of course. If a scientific theory is falsified it cannot be claimed as scientific. Rhetorical gibberish always impresses atheists.
Popper was trying to separate science from faith. But evolution requires more faith than Christianity. You have to have a lot of blind faith to accept that microbes became man, that 2 million genes on a pair of chromosomes developed by chance; that 48 feet of library book shelf space of DNA appeared by magic; or that the human body including the brain, liver, heart and human consciousness grew out of a walking fish. Faith indeed.
Dr. Sanford a former Atheist and Evolutionist, who is a Plant Geneticist recanted his 'faith' when he began to apply science to genes and mutations. His book, Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome, devastates the falsifiable non-science of Popper and his evolutionist friends. Sanford states:
‘Mutations are word-processing errors in the cell’s instruction manual. Mutations systematically destroy genetic information—even as word processing errors destroy written information. While there are some rare beneficial mutations (even as there are rare beneficial misspellings),1 bad mutations outnumber them—perhaps by a million to one. So even allowing for beneficial mutations, the net effect of mutation is overwhelmingly deleterious. The more the mutations, the less the information. This is fundamental to the mutation process.’
Evolution leads to extinction not to development or the mouse becoming Mozart, or the shrew's getting together and deciding on the 'great leap forward' to become Shakespeare:
‘So most beneficials drift out of the population and are lost—even in the presence of intense selection. This raises the question—since most information-bearing nucleotides [DNA ‘letters’] make an infinitesimally small contribution to the genome—how did they get there, and how do they stay there through “deep time”?
‘Selection slows mutational degeneration, but does not even begin to actually stop it. So even with intense selection, evolution is going the wrong way—toward extinction!’
Sanford's book details the collapse of evolution as a science.
‘The bottom line is that Darwinian theory fails on every level. It fails because: 1) mutations arise faster than selection can eliminate them; 2) mutations are overwhelmingly too subtle to be “selectable”; 3) “biological noise” and “survival of the luckiest” overwhelm selection; 4) bad mutations are physically linked to good mutations, so that they cannot be separated in inheritance (to get rid of the bad and keep the good). The result is that all higher genomes must clearly degenerate.”
The law of entropy would therefore entail that evolution leads to the extinction of species. Yet the cult dogma promotes the opposite.
Evolution is banal. Dead matter does not give rise to life. Fish don't walk. Mice don't fly. Bears did not become whales. Lemurs don't play the violin and build office towers. Your body ages, decays and dies as do all systems. Popper's falsifiability thesis when applied to evolution makes a mockery that evolution is science. It is a cult.
